    Preformed Steps Blistering

    We have a 33,000 gallon, club shaped, vinyl lined, in ground pool. The shallow end is about 3ft deep and has a set of preformed steps. Iím assuming the steps are made with fiberglass and have gel coat similar to a boat hull.

    I just noticed 5 or 6 nickel sized blisters in the gel coat. They are raised areas that show some small cracks but I donít believe the pool is loosing any water. All of them are below the waterline and feel firm to the touch.

    What, if anything, should I do about this?

    I would have a fiberglass person look at it. You probably want to have it repaired before it gets worse.
